Or, for the sake of convenience, just call Frum what he is: Neocon.
Frum is a prime example of this dangerous political species, which is just as universalist as the most raving Marxist (hence their enthusiasm for open borders), and always ready for another splendid little war.
What makes Neocons like Frum so noxious? Because they’re identity thieves who claim they’re conservative when in fact they’re agitating for leftist objectives.
Check out Frum’s creepy little post on the firing of John Derbyshire from National Review. He concludes with this bizarre counsel for conservatives:
The question ahead for American conservatives is whether they envision their future as a multi-ethnic coalition in favor of enterprise and individualism—or as a Bloc Québécois for older, white people. Fox News and Rush Limbaugh have embraced this latter future, and profited immensely by it. Nobody’s firing them.
Yeah, if you want to keep your job these days, you’d better not question the big-government/big-business agenda of open borders and egalitarianism. You want job security? Be a good bootlicker.
If “conservatism” is based on conserving the existing social order, how could transforming America into a Third-World country be called “conservative”? Nowhere in history has there existed a “multi-ethnic coalition” upholding free enterprise and individualism. What leads Frum to believe such a monstrosity could or should be cobbled together?
Answer: because he’s a lunatic.
